Community Quote

Palm's new m500 is the successor to the Vx. It looks virtually the same, although the shape is now slightly more rounded and the colour somewhat darker. So what are the new features? To list them briefly: USB synchronisation, faster processor, new operating system, and (at last) memory ... Read review

Could be a Vx replacement but not just yet...

AdvantagesUSB sync, expansion capability, improved OS

DisadvantagesPrice

"...development as far as Palm are concerned. The Handspring PalmOS machines have had USB synhronisation for years. This not only frees up a valuable serial port on your PC, but means faster (a *lot* faster) HotSyncs. The downside is that Palm have introduced yet another form of edge connector at the bottom of the device. There was outrage in the Palm community when they switched from the classic Palm connector (found on every Palm up to the IIIxe) to ..." Read review

A diary - with out the scribbling!

AdvantagesStores everything you will need.

DisadvantagesComplications in writing.

"...entrepreneur; however I have a palm handheld. Admittedly I did not buy this myself; it was given to me from my L.E.A. as part of my learning recourses package, to help me get through university with Dyslexia. And it has managed to do just that! WHAT IT IS The Palm m500 is no longer top of its range, (it has limited “beeb” noises and not sound, and it is in black and white) but is still far more than the average personal organiser!

m500. All the information in the Palm in my hand!

AdvantagesStylish, light and functional

DisadvantagesNo colour screen

"I've had the m500 for about two years now and it has never let me down. It's a good solid PDA work horse. The software that's preinstalled, although basic does "exactly what it says on the tin". The calendar / appointment function displays are clear and appointments can be set to repeat daily, weekly, monthly or yearly. Various alarms can be set to remind you of appointments and there is also a vibration feature with can be used in conjuntion ..." Read review

Splendid little PDA

AdvantagesSmall, Easy to use, Light

DisadvantagesNo colour screen, no real sound

"This has got to be the best PDA for the price. I managed to pick up one in a sale for about £100. Now I know it doesnt have a colour screen and the sound is, well, awful but lets face it. We dont usually use a PDA for the kind of things that need sound and fast video. This PDA lets you sync your email, check diary appointments, doodle, write essays or notes and best of all it lets you play games on a crowded train :) Comes with IR built in and ..." Read review
